Could someone test Aros on genuine Amiga?
« on: April 03, 2020, 02:14:04 PM »
Hi

I have uploaded a slightly adapted version of aros vision that could run on Amiga hardware with Kick 3.0 or 3.1

minimum requirememt is some fastram

Would be interesting to know if it works

I’m glad to try if someone points me at a tool to mount this on the Amiga. I’ve tried ‘ImageMount’ so far with no luck.

@OlafS3

Please learn to use lha :)

Code: [Select]
cd sys:
lha -x -a -r a aros.lha ~(aros.lha) #?
and then upload that aros.lha somewhere - this whole disk-image stuff works great on emulators and FPGA systems like MiSTer, MiST and Minimig - but sucks on real Amiga and other systems that cannot directly just use a disk image (and that includes Vampire V4 too, for that matter).

I have the same problem as Alexscotti : I can not mount your hdf image with the tool provided by AOS4 (DiskImage) in order to transfer it to my A1200...

I have made a lha archive (like recommended) and uploaded it

The perfect bug report :)
What did not work?

Btw, the zip archive have a few “gliches”, some files exists twice with filenames in different casings, which indicate that your UAE host OS has case sensitive file system, which Amiga doesn’t have. When unzipping the archive, users are asked if they want to over write these files.

I just saw wawa's explaination for why AROSBootStrap fails, will try again on V500 and perhaps also 060 later today.

Well, that wasn't easy, since Wawa only posted that aros.elf on a slack channel somewhere :p

Had issues with the archive, executable bit missing on c: contents and others. Once fixed it runs arosbootsrap when it boots then gets to a grey screen and hangs. 060 machine.

That's what I get too, if I use vcontrol to load recent 1MB AROS kickstarts on the V500v2, I must dig around for older disk images.

First line in startup-sequence runs arosbootstrap against aros.elf file. Am I supposed to be configuring something to point at a kickstart for my machine?

Hey,

I tried the .zip-package on my A3000 (040). I unzipped (on the amiga) the package to empty 1G PFS3 partition that was set as bootable. During the installation I noticed the same problems with the packages as some others: unzipping complained about files already exiting (I used the option overwrite all). Also the first boot did not work as all the executables are missing executable bit. Then I did set the executable bit to the most obvious files (C, system, tools, wbstartup etc.) myself and tried booting again.

This time I got the Aros bootscreen and was able to enter the bootmenu. But it seems that the current setup does not recognize the A3000 scsi controller. The only bootable device seems to be df0: . Any idea how to/if it is possible to boot with A3000 scsi?

Well, i did some testing and using Chris Tonys patched scsi.device (a3000 version) and setting it as a parameter for the arosbootstrap, I was able to get it booting. I also tried the mntgfx.card P96 card file to get va2000 support. I was not able to get the boot logo displayed with the va2000, but it might work when actually booting the os. But currently the boot ends up after some time to Workbench screen with a small window reading Mount FA... Error (Attachment).
